Epididymitis is the bacterial infection and inflammation of the epididymis. It is commonly seen in the outpatient setting. Epididymitis in adults is most often caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia, while epididymitis in children is likely caused by direct trauma or a urinary tract infection.

Symptoms of epididymitis usually present as the following:

  • A swollen, red or warm scrotum

  • Testicle pain and tenderness, usually on one side, that usually comes on gradually

  • Painful urination or an urgent or frequent need to urinate

  • Discharge from the penis

  • Pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen or pelvic area

  • Blood in the semen

Never ignore these above symptoms, they may cause more serious problems if left untreated. Once it is left treated for a long time, the epididymitis may lead to orchitis, seminal vesiculitis and other diseases, which affects sperm quality. Do some patients worry that will epididymitis leads to epididymal cancer?

Epididymitis generally won’t become cancer, epididymitis is a common infectious disease of the male reproductive system, the pathogenic microorganisms infected mainly include mycoplasma, chlamydia, etc.The clinical experience confirms that it is cured by proper and standardized treatment. 

In maximum cases the antibiotics are first given to the patient, which are successful enough to cure mild Epididymitis. However, the course of medicines may be changed for each patient depending upon the resistance of disease causing organisms.

If the infection is not cured at the right time then severe complications may develop that can only be cured through a surgery. Surgical removal of epididymis has high risk of causing sterility and can relive pain only in 50% cases.

Others have also achieved the effect of curing epididymitis by taking some Chinese patent medicines such as the Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. The herbs in these patent medicines work effectively and directly into the reproductive system and urinary system, to completely clear up infections. So patients do not need to worry too much about the problem that epididymitis will become cancer.
